Why wont the key stay in the on position when starting my 1994 z24?

The key is not supposed to stay in the 'On' position when starting a 1994 Z24. When a person starts a vehicle, the key is turned to the far right. When the engine starts the key automatically goes one section to the left. If the key is turning too far and making the engine shut off, then the ignition has to be changed.

All I can do is give you starting prices. It really just depends on how you configure the truck. The F-150 starts at $21,850. The F-250 starts at $28,500. The F-350 starts at $28,983. The F-450 starts at $46,500. The F-450 has such a high starting cost because it comes standard with the crew cab, long bed, 4WD, and the diesel engine.
